Wednesday Hero 03/09/2011

Senior Airman Nicholas J. Alden and Airman 1st Class Zachary R. Cuddeback
March 2, 2011
U.S. Navy

On March 2, a gunman walked into a Frankfurt, Germany airport and shot four people, killing two of them. They were:

Senior Airman Nicholas J. Alden
Senior Airman Nicholas J. Alden who was 25-years-old from Williamston, S.C. He was assigned to the 48th Security Forces Squadron at RAF Lakenheath in England.

Airman 1st Class Zachary R. Cuddeback
Airman 1st Class Zachary R. Cuddeback of Stanardsville, Va. He was assigned to the 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron at Ramstein Air Base in Germany.

Both Men were being deployed to Afghanistan. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and families these Men left behind.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

As always, mine are there - every day.

BTW, why a Navy emblam for two USAF dudes?

I missed this story as I was at Fort Sill helping with the newest grandson.

My friend with a son stationed in Germany said that the gunman yelled allah ackbar. but I don't see it in your story.

Hi mom, for some reason I cannot comment on Proud Mom to a 1-89 Cavalry Scout, she is reporting the death of a soldier close to her, not her son. If you can contact her please express my condolences.
